    I am so sorry to hear of Lessie’s passing. I had the pleasure of working with Lessie at the Stanly County Museum from 1998 to 2000. Lessie fed me many wonderful homemade lunches in the museum’s kitchen and was always the best company. She was loyal, hardworking, and dedicated to the museum and to serving our visitors. I will miss her. Rest in peace, Lessie.

    I can never forget how Lessie took me under her wing when I came to the Museum. Always sweet, always optimistic, and always a joy to be around. She was a beautiful person. I am blessed to have been able to know her.

Stanly overwhelmingly met or exceeded our family’s expectations. Family and friends both expressed how thoughtful, caring and professional they were. We’re glad you’re in Locust!


We never felt hurried or rushed in any way even though they had other funerals that day.  Everyone at Stanly Funeral Home made us feel like we were family and did everything they could for us in this most trying time in our lives.


Everyone went out of their way to make sure that every detail was good with me.  Their kindness, patience and love they show is superior.  Stephen Aldridge and his ENTIRE staff are the best.


The whole staff was wonderful but Stephen Aldridge was excellent, even sending us a note one month later.
